Good conditions letting augur a vintage 2014 particularly concentrated, fruity with tanins of a beautiful finess.

To the eye, a beautiful purplish ruby color. To the nose, appear tasty and fruity notes of crushed stramberries which are also present in mouth. At the end of the mouth, we also find flavors of Violet. This vintage provided with a beautiful concentration of tannins and flavors, assuring a good potential of ageing.
The beautiful concentration and the fruity notes of the Vieilles Vignes 2014 will marry wonderfully with all sorts of cheese and meats such as games, beef or lamb.
